4:33 pm

4:35 pm
morning. there was somebody at home at the time but they were in a different part of the house. no one was injured inside the house. no one was seriously injuried in this crash either. the officer walked away, the husband and wife in the car were okay as well. they were treated for minor injuries the 65-year-old driver said yeah, i did see the lights and i heard the sirens, but i thought i could make the turn in time. >> oh, my goodness. >> woops. >> how lucky that no one was in that room, that no one was sleeping, that no one was injuried. and it's amazing that even though the officer hit the driver side of that car that no one in that car was injured. >> this amazing rescue video happened in brush prairie, washington. take a look at this. now, what you see here is a
4:36 pm
backyard in brush prairie. a wife came out of her backdoor and saw this deer here where you knowing back and forth against the rocks in her backyard. she seemed to be shoving her nose in the rocks. they could figure out what was going on. so they called a rescue team. the rescue team that you see here figured out that a baby fawn had fallen in between these heavy bolders. >> she's circling. >> the mother deer just circled the yard constantly. here you see her circling. if you listen closely enough, you hear the screams of the baby fawn. >> yay! >> there's -- >> aww. they pulled the baby fawn out. >> here's the reunion of mother and child. >> a bambi story we can tell everybody. >> and then she almost looks back as if to say thank you.

4:38 pm
bridge. >> looks like she's directly over the train tracks. so if she did plummet to her death, she would follow on top of a train, not car. >> after the performance, she climbs back down and ready to meet her at the very bottom of the performance was the nypd. she takes off running. three minutes later, they have her in custody. but even while she's in custody, she continues performing. she is charged with a class a felony, which carries a maximum penalty of seven years in prison. her fans on twitter raised moin less than an hour and paid her bail. eventually her charges were dropped to a misdemeanor. and instead of spending seven years in prison, she was able to make a plea deal, which includes five free performances for kids. >> you'll neat a porcupine that goes all cranky pants if you touch his corn.
